Business Recovery Specialists – On Ice!
Our Fun Christmas Networking Event.
Here at Business Recovery Specialists, we spend most of our time helping businesses facing difficulties recover and turn their fortunes around. On this occasion, however, we were right out of our comfort zone, when we organised an early Christmas Networking Event – On Ice!
On Thursday 1st December, we welcomed guests from the Birmingham and Coventry business community to an ice skating and charity fund raising event at The Skydome, Planet Ice in Coventry. It wasn’t just networking that was on offer, either! All 30 attendees had a 1 hour lesson with 2 coaches from the International School of Skating who currently train with the GB figure skating Team. So it was serious stuff.
A great time was had by all. Our normal diet of helping businesses facing Creditor Pressure, HMRC Debt and Cash Flow Problems, was put to one side. Suffice it to say, some were better on the ice than others!! The ‘Best Skater’ competition was judged by Richard Beamish, one of the coaches from the International School of Skating. He also presented the winner with their prize – a free public skating session for a family of 4, kindly donated by the Skydome.
Business Recovery Specialists Christmas Jumper Competition
We also had a Christmas jumper competition to raise money for the Myton Hospice. The competition was judged by Sharon Hill of Poppleton & Appleby for the best (or was it the cheesiest?) Christmas Jumper, and the prize, a Debenhams voucher, was presented by director Matt Hardy.
All in all, it was a fun, new and different approach to business networking. It certainly went down well with all of those who attended. Best of all, we raised £110 for Myton Hospice, meaning there’s more to Business Recovery Specialists than Business Recovery!.
Thanks to all who attended. Watch out for more creative networking events in the future.
